I am an award-winning author of six novels and a regular contributor to The New York Times. My books range in genre from a humorous and heartfelt coming of age novel, to a noir series featuring a gritty yet poetic narrator with a voice that reads, according to Publishers Weekly, like “Raymond Chandler taking dictation from Walt Whitman,” to two Italian adventures full of food and wine and travel. All the books explore important themes and are intended to leave the reader uplifted. I love to engage with readers and make new friends along the way. Here’s a quick reaction to each work:
THE DOMINO EFFECT: “Full of humor and heart as the best coming-of-age novels.” – Ann Hood
OUTERBOROUGH BLUES: A BROOKLYN MYSTERY: “An ambitious noir thriller that reads like Raymond Chandler taking dictation from Walt Whitman.” – Publishers Weekly
BLACK IRISH BLUES: “Having been so impressed with Andrew Cotto’s previous book – Outerborough Blues – it is with no small measure of delight that I can bring you a review of the next book Black Irish Blues, and whisk you away to the mean streets of New Jersey in this soulful and compelling read…” – Raven Crime Reads
CUCINA TIPICA: AN ITALIAN ADVENTURE: “For any reader with a passion for the streets of Florence and the hills of Tuscany, Cucina Tipica is a rare delight to the senses and intellect.” – The Brooklyn Rail
CUCINA ROMANA: ANOTHER ITALIAN ADVENTURE: “Beautifully descriptive and romantic, this is one Italian adventure you don’t want to miss!” – Adriana Trigiani
